has dogged our economy or the last few years, is that no one wants us to go back to 110% mortgages that we had during the boom times, but weo need to make available to young people the chance that both earning decent salary to be able to buy a case of flood or a decent house th a mortgage that doesn't require a massive deposit. that hasn't been possible for people in recent years and i ink the bank of england move on funding for landings scheme from 80 billion pounds is now going through to the mortgage market and making available lower mortgages at a decent a long-term rate. and that's great. >> thank you, sir. [shouting] [laughter] >> further to the exchange to the leader of the opposition earlier, can ask the prime minister if he will tell the house whether he will personally benefit from the millionaires tax cut, to be introduced in april? >> i will pay all the taxes that are due in the proper way. but the point i would make to him -- [shouting] the point i would make to him is that all the years he sat on this side of the house there was a top rated tax that was lower than the
. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> the president says the economy is improving, but we have to do better. he says republicans don't have a clue, and that austerity is not the answer. he says it is time to educate our children and rebuild our infrastructure. the president's fourth state of the union. how do we pay the bill? >> nothing i am proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. >> the president offered more of the same -- higher taxes and more stimulus spending. >> the president wants congress to come up with $40 billion to improve infrastructure, wants to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour, wants a new energy bill similar to cap-and-trade, wants preschool for every 4-year-old in the nation, tax reform, gun control, citizenship for undocumented immigrants. what are his chances, charles? >> approximately zero. he is talking as if we have a huge surplus so we can start spending all over again inaugural address was the philosophical statement of what i call this left-liberalism, the state of the union address is the programmat
where the increase in the minimum wage has stymied the economy, caused jobs to be lost, caused employers not to hire. where is the evidence of that? >> if that is the case, let's make it $20, $50. we not only have chronic unemployment of 8%, we have huge and terribly destructive teenage unemployment, minority unemployment. this is the entry-level jobs where you get started. if you are going to price it out of the market in an economy that has the weakest recovery since the second world war, you are guaranteeing you will create blight for these people. >> those other people who do the jobs that none of us want to do. i think the odds are that he will not get it and he will not fight for it that hard. the last person who fought for a minimum-wage increase was ted kennedy and he actually got it. >> who will be the time kennedy in the senate is an interesting question, too. >> if you cannot pay someone $9 an hour, you probably should not be a business. >> i agree with him -- >> you talk about the economy as if it is a moral and estimate. even if i agree with you, it does not change the fact
on republicans warning that our economy, jobs, lives, could be in danger, if these scheduled cuts across the board go through. but the latest numbers show if the automatic reductions take place, there will be 85 billion dollars in cuts this year. that's equal to what the government spends in nine days. even if it happens, the government is projected more than last year, so he you see, we're talking about a decrease in the increase in spending and you may be asking yourself how can we survive and live on, with just the paltry amount of spending? well, where would we look for the example? how about last year when we did it just fine? all this leading to questions about how the fallout could be so dramatic. so dire, so awful. when the total federal budget is actually increasing. chris stirewalt is our national digital news editor. how can we do it? where can we find the historical example of the surviving on a budget that's cut in this manner. oh, last year. i mean, what's the answer to that. why are the politicians, you know, chicken littling us? >> well, remember this, if there , if there
and dedication have not yet been rewarded. our economy is adding jobs -- but too many people still can't find full-time employment. corporate profits have rocketed to all-time highs -- but for more than a decade, wages and incomes have barely budged. task,our generation's then, to reignite the true engine of america's economic growth -- a rising, thriving middle class. [laughter] --[applause] it is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country -- the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, what you look like, or who you love. it is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few, that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation. [applause] the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. they don't expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. [applause]
of thousands of jobs in our economy at risk for a spew special interest tax loop holes. >>> good evening, everyone. i'm larry kudlow. this is "the kudlow report." you heard it. president obama slams the republicans, predicting dire results if they don't avoid the sequester. but is this the very same president obama who said this about that same sequester less than 18 months ago? >> some in congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. my message to them is simp -- no. i will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts domestic and defense spending. there will be no easy off-ramps on this one. >>> well, i wish he would make up his mind. remember, this was president obama's god. now he needs to blame somebody else for it. here's the thing, he should be embracing the sequester. why? smaller government is essential to a prosperous economy. as the mainstream media become the president's lapdog? are they just victims of president obama? even pillars of the media establishment are starting to complain about their lack of any access to the president. now, here's some
people to make more than $9 an hour. you create a robust economy. >> bill: what is the biggest problem facing america? two new analysts scott brown and herman cain will tell us and i will weigh in on that. >> i'm a clinton person. that is the way politics is. >> bill: how does president obama stack up against president clinton? >> he needs to go into the room >> bill: here come the lawsuits against carnival cruise operation. he millions of dollars will be sought with the ship falling apart on the high seas. is it legal? >> caution you are about to enter the no-spin zone. factor begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: i'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching tonight. what is the biggest problem facing the country today? that is the subject of this evening's talking points. on paper the biggest problem is the national debt approaching $70 trillion with no end in sight and failure of pinheads to deal with the debt in washington. if the massive borrowing continues the u.s. economy could very well collapse, but in reality, no on the paper, the biggest problem the nation has is us, our mentality. i
that trend and take one oracle -- 1-2% of our economy every year to convert to green energy, we would be much further ahead. i'm so tired of the republican party to always be anti-green. we have an issue on this planet. i would like to see some things done in regard to that. green energy is important, and we should pursue it. thank you so much. guest: nobody is saying that it is not important. what they are seeing is that the federal government does not need the department of energy -- it does not need to be putting money into loan programs for companies like solyndra and fiskar. others -- they have gone bankrupt the. have gotten hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars for loan programs and all of those companies that got those loans with that taunt of money have gone bankrupt. something is wrong with the vetting process and something is wrong with technology that it is not working in the marketplace. i had solar panels on my house in tennessee as a test keys thursday as a test case 30 + years ago. they're looking to see if we could get enough heat units per day in solar panels. we never got
the economy or create jobs, it will eviscerate the job-creating investments. >> just ten days left to prevent $85 billion in spending cuts. >> the sequester. >> the sequester. >> the sequester. >> it won't consider whether we're cutting some bloated program or a vital service. >> it doesn't make those distinctions. if congress allows this meat cleaver approach. >> people are getting hysterical. >> thousands of teachers will be laid off. >> the president is count iing the republicans again. >> the president promised it would happen, he is the commander-in-chief. >> he would like to replace it. he has not put details out there. >> there is a stalemate, just ten days -- >> these cuts are not fair. >> the sky is falling, the sky is falling. >> they don't have to happen. congress has to act. >>> tonight, another dramatic deadline is looming for the financing of the government of the united states of america. in just ten days, an unprecedented $1.2 trillion in spending cuts will begin to take effect. and you know what that means for congress? that is right, six more days left of recess. that leaves
of the rich. the problem is, whenever he tries to squeeze more money out of the economy, he is slowing it down. we slowed down in the fourth quarter, and it's not because government spending is going down. government spending is still going at pace and we have plenty of government spending and in fact spent more the fourth quarter last year than the third quarter and spent more than the previous year and never had a real cut in spending in recent history. so i think he's just flat-out wrong. >> chris: but, as a matter -- whether right or wrong, and, you know, it doesn't have anything to do with -- as a matter of practical politics isn't the president putting the republican party in the same spot he successfully put you in during the campaign, he's defending the middle class and you guys are protecting tax breaks for the wealthy? >> right and that is empty and false rhetoric and is our job to explain to the american people, big government doesn't help the poor. big government creates massive debt which causes your prices to rise. your gas price going up, if you make $20,000 a year, and have two
. oscar for best actor goes to? look at that, washington. they act like the economy thrives, but news today, it could be diving. automatic cuts around the corner, but the white house says it is calm. the guy at the receiving end of the blow saying democrats are as calm as the union guys who hit him. him. don't believe them. this is $100,000. him. don't believe them. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. did you know not all fiber is the same? citrucel is different- it's the only fiber for regularity that won't cause excess gas. it's gentle and clinically proven to help restore and maintain regularity. look for citrucel today. neil: look up. over much of the country, it's the same story. a massive snowstorm slamming a good chunk of the country, but one week before the automatic cuts are set to kick in, the new york new york say -- the "new yo
the state of the economy, he probably should have lost and he won not just because of mitt romney's inadequacies, but because he built the finest political organization in recent american history with more than 1 million volunteers. >> you share that in common with barack obama. his hometown of chicago. your hometown is chicago. >> i met barack obama in 2002 and at that time he had just lost for the house of representatives. he told me when we first met when my aunt had died and he came over to pay respects to my cousin's house. he said he was going to run for the u.s. senate. i remember thinking, wow, that's a lot of nerve. he just lost for the house and he is running for the senate? yes, i knew him and i knew a lot of the people around him in chicago for many years because i grew up in chicago politics. my mother was a politician. my mother new barack obama in the '80s. so, you know, in some ways i'm familiar with the political environment that he came out of and i think that, you know, it's giving me a little bit more insight going back with these folks for quite a long period
to local economies being able to sustain and say yes, we have clean water, we have vegetables, we have meat that is not -- animals that are not dying and fish not rising to the top of the lakes because of ground water coming up with methane and all the chemicals, most of which we don't even have disclosed to us to know. no gag orders on us to tell us. this is what we need. we need transparency. we need real information. we don't need the same advertising companies who told us it was ok to smoke and hospitals telling us that fracking is safe. no. we didn't believe you then. we don't believe you now. no fracking, no tar sands, yes on innovative technology for our future. we're not inheriting trillions of dollars of debt and water we can't drink. food we can't eat. no. so thank you so much for making this issue front and center, making sure that he understands and all the other leaders in our audience knows they have the constituents behind them to support them to do the right thing. you are a whole legacy building. thank you for doing that with us. >> now i'm good. i got a hug. i'm good now.
in it for the private development of the economy and jobs. i think the original founders of the sierra club would be appalled. >> paul: james. >> big miss to the olympic committee, this is the year not the millennium. dropping wrestling from the olympic, man's oldest sport and keeping badminton, ping-pong, synchronized swimming. synchroniz synchronized swimming's main contribution for a "saturday night live" kit. >> mary. >> a hit to florida senator marco rubio who turned his sweaty, walk ward swig of water during the state of the union response so-called gulp-gate into a political asset making fun of himself and posted a photo of a water bottle on twitter gained thousands of followers, in the instant politics and a little humor can go a long way. >> paul: see if it helps him along the way. if you have your hit or miss send it to us at jer@foxnews.com and twitter@jer on fnc. i'm paul gigot, we hope to see you here next week. >> jon: a week full of news, north korea tests a nuclear bomb. pope benedict called it quits, a historic move. president obama gives his state of the union speech setting the
people have been coming from mexico. and part of that is the bad economy in the u.s. there's just fewer jobs. part of that is a good economy in mexico. part of it's our enforcement. and of course, drug cartels and the drug war in mexico have played a huge role. >> but james, republicans are going to have to talk about border security, border security, border security to sell the other part of this. we saw john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary,
the sequester could really have on the economy if no deal is reached before the deadline. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live in washington with this. mike, what is the practical impact the real impact that many of us would feel from se sequestration? >> the automatic cuts are half domestic, after defense. he tkpepding on your interaction with the government, if you work or do business with the government you may be affected more. today the agriculture secretary raised the impact on the food on our tables. >> the only way we can absorb a cut of this magnitude is by impacting the people who work in the food safety area of usda, and we all know that when we do that it doesn't just impact those workers, it impacts all the processing facilities and plants and proceed tucks facilities across the country. >> reporter: the suggestion being that could lead to restaurants and supermarkets struggling to stay stocked with properly inspected food, jenna. jenna: that certainly hits home. we've hoard from republicans and democrats how drastic of an impact this might be in a whole slew of
for the economy t's not going to be good for ordinary people. but i don't know if they're going to move. >> the president did reach across the aisle this week most recently dialing up house speaker john boehner and senate minority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday. we don't know what was said in those calls, but we do know they didn't result in new meetings between the president and congressional leaders. both sides instead focusing on dominating this debate. >> democrats don't seem to understand that taxing americans dampens the economy. republicans don't seem to understand that massive unfocused cuts right now are going to slow down the economy. >> you seriously have to wonder whether anyone in washington, in the house and the senate, in the white house and the administration, republican, democrat, do they ever go outdoors? >> so the economic hammer falling at the end of the month. $85 billion in cuts. what will that mean to your wallet or your family? $619 million in cuts to the federal aviation administration which could result in major flight delays for travelers. $406 million in cu
with the the sequester. it's hanging over the economy. and you say like the airplane we are flying is going down and we're taking a break to watch the in-flight movie. so what are you talking about? is this sort of a lack of urgency from both sides? because there's no incentive for democrats nor republicans to cut a deal here? >> i am not saying that at all, alex. i'm saying that the house leadership on the republican side, which controls the schedule, controls the calendar, they have every power to bring us back to d.c., to go back to our desks on the floor of the house and work out the problem. with ten days to go before the ridiculous sequester takes place, we don't get called back to washington. instead, we have what we call a district work week scheduled. in other words, people are working on things other than averting this sequester. i think it's ridiculous. i think that even to see the republican house leadership working hardest on blaming president obama for the sequester is foolish. what we have is speaker boehner making posters about president obama trying to call it the obama-quester, sort o
't pay attention to the fact the economy blows. economy is horrible. everybody knows the economy is horrible and the economy has not begun to recover any time since the let's talk about condos, let's talk about essentially how the left ran the campaign. we can not be sidetracked by that. we are always playing defense because you're a bad person and natural human instinct is someone says you are a bad person the natural human instinct is to say no i am not. i am not a bad person. why are you saying that? i am not a racist. how can you call me -- no evidence for that. the first instinct needs to be go on the offensive. they are the real racists for defacing the term racism to apply for things that clearly and definitely not racist. if you call something a basic economic policy anti-semitic, had nothing to do with jews, that is an anti-semitic move because your watering down anti-semitism to apply to thing that did not apply. when they're calling people racist without any basis is like a boy who cried wolf. what they're doing is making room for real raise this to be one into the cat
. nationally, the economy could fall back into recession. yet the contrast between how each party is playing its hand could not be more stark. the president is taking his message of a balanced approach to eight local affiliates from different geographic regions of the country. this comes after his speech tuesday, where he laid out what the sequester cuts will mean to the average american. >> so these cuts are not smart, they are not fair, they will hurt our economy, they will add hundreds of thousands of americans to the unemployment roles. this is not an abstraction. do you want to protect some special interest loophole? >> in other words, this is deadly serious and the president is arguing his case before the entire nation. so what has speaker boehner been doing for the last 24 hours? well, he did manage to pen an opinion piece for "the wall street journal" presumely between lying on a sun tanning bed. i won't bore you with the details but it says the sequester is ugly and dangerous but it's up to democrats to present a plan that can pass. and then he returned to darkening his complexion.
to a tea party on the right. and so they are--or they seem to be willing to sacrifice the nation's economy and sacrifice the other things that we all believe in and americans want like social security, medicare, education, job training, all the things we come to expect and understand is necessary along with the military. >> john: well, i recall john boehner boasting how he got 98% of what he wanted in the last deal. doesn't it seem like there is plenty of blame to go around in terms of republicans and democrats not trying to fix this problem rather than assigning blame. >> there is blame to go around all the time. but when the republicans say that the democrats and the white house have not come forward with any spending cuts, they seem to, again, going back to amnesia they seem to disregard the $1.5 trillion of spending cuts that the president has agreed to. we're going back to zero. they have an odd arithmetic. when they agree to spending cuts. they say fine and then say they want more spending cuts. they want to go after social security and medicare. that's their goal. but they don't wan

to happen. the impact on the economy would be terrible for american families. we don't want it. we think it is bad policy. it was designed to be bad policy. that was the whole point. the sequester was written in a way that would assure that congress would never let it happen. >> by putting it off, it could work to your advantage perhaps? >> i think you're misunderstanding or maybe we're not doing a good enough job trying to convince you. we support efforts in congress to buy down the sequester but they should come back and do it tomorrow or come back next week. buy it down so the sequester does not have an immediate effect and congress can get back to work and we can get that $4 trillion in deficit reduction that analysts have called for. we've been working for that. up to $2.7 trillion in deficit reduction has been achieved thus far. our deficit is coming down but we need to do more work to make sure that process continues. that's what we want, that's what the president wants. >> i have a question about cyber crime among other things. what can we expect? >> i think if you're talking a t
in second? caller: that would be clinton with the economy. he picked up the economy and we had a surplus. host: who wood your parents have said? caller: probably fdr, because he helped everybody, like social security and when there was no work, he helped people find work, came up with programs to help them get work. i'm not sure what it was called because i was not keeping up with it back then. all these programs became up with to help the working man. host: you remember your parents talking about this? caller: i do. host: how did they view government back then? caller: before he helped them, they probably gave it a 0 rating. host: francis, tennessee, republican caller. george washington? caller: correct. because he started the country, made the constitution were initially. before that, and he was the first in war, the first increase. he was a good and virtuous man and set an example for the rest of the president's to follow. host: what example is that? caller: he served two terms and stepped down. he advocated for a long time, people staying out of foreign entanglements. host: who would
? >> the problem is, you have people on the far right saying splash and burn right now when you have an economy that's actually losing track. that's not workable. on the other side, you have paul krugman and nancy pelosi who say we don't have a spending problem and we don't have to worry about the debt until 2025. actually, you have barack obama and a lot of the senate and certainly most of the people that come on this show, in the middle, saying let's do two things at once. i know there are a lot of republicans that feel that way too. there should be a deal. let's go on and read mark's. >> okay. here's mark in "the daily beast." debt is a drag, a reality you may experience with every credit card bill you open. for a corporation or a government, it can be even more of a drag on economic growth and job creation. yes, at times moderate levels of government borrowing can be good medicine, helping to spur a weak economy and reduce unemployment and sharp increases in deficit spending are expected in extraordinary times during a war or in an economic crisis. but sustained, irresponsible deficit spend
soon enough. we have more from hanoi. >> reporter: vietnam's economy is racing ahead. but not everybody is moving forward. streets in hanoi are full of cars and motor bikes. across the country, factories pour harmful substances into the environment. this river running through the capital is dangerously contaminated. harmful chemical readings are 30 times higher than the maximum alould allowed by the government. people living down stream are suffering the consequences. this man and his wife while born and raised in this village. they are farmers who survive by growing rice and other crops. his legs are the result of years walking in the rice patties. a government investigator told him chemicals are in the water to blame. >> translator: the water i fill my patties with is black. my legs itch from working in the rice fields. water shouldn't be black. but i have no choice but to use that terrible water for farming. >> reporter: he worries about pollution. a new deal originating in japan is gaining public attention. the japan international cooperation agency is encouraging japanese companies
use. >>> many japanese were starting to feel optimistic about the future of the nation's economy with the new prime minister, but prices at the pump are putting a damper on things. ron madison is here with the latest on that. >> it is times like these when i'm glad i don't have a car, but people like you and other drivers are feeling the pinch now because gas prices have been increasing for at least the past two months now. japanese government surveys asked questions of major wholesalers about the higher retail prices of gasoline and kerosene. the agency is concerned about excessive prizes caused by the weaker yen to push-up the cost of natural imports. the energy agency officials summoned executives of oil wholesalers on thursday asking executives about their company's cost for crude oil imports, the volume of gasoline shipments as well as inventories. now the average retail price of regular gasoline climbed for an 11th straight week. the price of kerosene has also risen for a 12th week in a row. the president of the japanese oil wholesalers organization says he will instruct me
